Under the direction of Ignacio García and with the collaboration of the Cervantes Institute, the Museum stages the present, presence and relevance of female voices. 

A poetic-musical recital about women poets, writers and playwrights of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. A journey through several of their works in which we discover the difficulties they had to face and recognize the richness of the female literary world of the time. 

It is surprising to experience the actuality of the verses of María de Zayas, Ana Caro de Mallén, Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, Santa Teresa de Ávila, Ángela de Azevedo and Sor María do Ceo. All of them shine with their ideas and from the place reserved for them in the Golden Age, protagonists of their own lives. From the books, scenarios and convents they inhabit, they are capable of being ahead of their time and inventing spaces of equality and freedom.

Four women on stage, two actresses, Lara Grube and Carmen del Valle, a singer, Rita Barber and the harpist and singer Sara Agueda, give voice, music and presence to these women and show us in an eloquent way the powerful validity of their verses and ideas. All this gives life to a unique walk through the powerful voices of women of their time but present in every era.
